Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • My muscle aches decreased! I usually wake up in the middle of the night and have hard time to go back to sleep. I slept through the night! Usually my muscles are pretty stiff when I get up, today I feel great!

    Derek has a way with his hands. I went in for a quick session focused on my lower back due to some recent strain. I walked out feeling like a new person!

  • I loved that he communicated with me and made sure I felt comfortable. The pain is what I disliked ha but that was necessary. My range of motion improved in the following days and so did my posture.

    Derek has years of experience that add to his culminated knowledge of well-being for athletes and non athletes alike; I would recommend.

  • Amazing work and great company

    Derek knows how to get into the nooks and crannies of your muscles and really make them wish they hadn't started acting up in the first place.

  • Very professional and thorough. The massage I recieved alleviated a lot of pain and discomfort I was experiencing. I would recommend Derek to friends and return as a client myself.

    Derek is the best. He knows his clients, and tailors his sessions to our individual needs. He's kept me healthy and moving through an Ironman, powerlifting, crossfit, and everyday life. He's the best.

  • Derek provided an amazing massage, as always. He asked what needed work, focused on those areas, and discovered some others as well.

    Derek did a great job! The massage felt great, and my injury felt a world of difference the next day! He was also very kind, personable and warm.

Derek is an incredibly kind soul as well as an expert massage therapist and wellness practitioner! As a woman I feel 110% comfortable with him. This is a small, Black and queer-owned business I love to support. Self-care!

I have had a headache for over 3-weeks. I have been given steroids, muscle relaxers, heavy duty allergy and pain meds. Nothing has worked until Derek. He was very responsive to how my body was reacting. I feel much better and am going back. I feel safe and confident about his studio too with his Covid 19 protocols.

I’ve worked with Derek for many years now. I feel very engaged with his work with me and he is very responsive to my needs and requests. He also takes very extensive precautions regarding COVID and is very serious about it. His home studio is not a spa experience, but clean and comfortable.

Derek is personable and professional. Great deep tissue massage really works to get at the knots and relax the muscles. Good ambiance and clean facilities.

Derek was very professional. He was keen on asking about my physical activities as well as observing my posture before making a plan for my massage. He was very strong and attentive. I enjoyed the experience and I would recommend him.

Can't recommend Derek enough. He spent a lot of time making sure he understood my condition and continuously checked in with me to ensure I was comfortable. Best of all, I walked out of there feeling good as new.

Derek was outstanding and knew exactly what to do to get to my trouble spots. Feeling great 3-4 days afterward still.

Derek is fantastic. He caters the session to your specific concerns or pains, is incredibly informative, and will let you know what issues he's seeing/why they're happening. At the risk of sounding dramatic, the day after the massage (and this is being written the morning of the second day, so I'm sure this will remain true) , I felt the best I had in years.

He is very skilled and does some amazing deep tissue work! He was professional and I felt great afterwards and so much better after some good hydration as a good deep tissue massage will do. I’m glad I found him and will likely return when I’m able. Thanks Derek!

I had never had a massage before and it was great to have a discussion about any problems I was having and receiving pointers on how to do some techniques myself. Thanks so much!

Derek is very skilled, knowledgeable, and always takes time to listen and customize his work to meet my needs. He's especially great at doing deep tissue work and has fantastic intuition in finding and focusing on spots that need the most work. The atmosphere in his studio is very relaxing and he always puts you at ease with his calm and professional demeanor. I feel completely rejuvenated after every massage with Derek.

Derek is professional, knows how to find your triggerpoints, does a good job of warming you up, knows his anatomy, and just gets the job done no matter what you need that day. Whether it is deep tissue or a full relaxing experience that you were going for, Derek is your man!

Derek always makes you feel at home and comfortable, then goes after the trouble areas that you tell him about. He also makes observations of other areas that you may not be aware of. Have been seeing him once a month for years and always feel better afterwards.
